Martha playing pizzicatoMartha Pressler‘s passion for playing chamber music has been a lifelong pursuit, while also working professionally in the fields of gerontology and teaching music to young children. Although she has taken advantage of many professional playing opportunities, she considers herself an amateur in the true sense of the word, a lover of cello and especially chamber music for strings.

She currently is on the board of ACMP, the Chamber Music Network, and is the cellist in the Classical Beauties piano trio in Portland, Oregon.
